ARC generously provided by publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.This has some very useful information especially dealing with parenting children of the i gen. The title leads you to believe this will be a book with a cut and dry list of 12 don'ts while parenting. However, that is not the case. This book is filled with all types of information to help while raising children in todays time and most of it will hit home and make you think. This is a Christian based book which I r [...]
Well presented ideas on parenting that are well worth reading about. Practical situations that are easy to relate to for an everyday parent are given as examples to support a few basic principles every parent would be wise to consider. For some it may be obvious - for others such principles may not be so obvious. For this second group this book might provide a lot of useful food for thought. They are presented in an easily read and understandable way. Although some might find items repeating thr [...]
More reviews (and no fluff) on the blog surrealtalvi.wordpress/This is a surprisingly good book packed with very useful and up to date observations on the iY gen child (i for ipad/iphone/etc. and y for Gen Y). Most of the book is focused on parents and the repercussions of how parenting has evolved after the fin de siecle. So while the title sounds very simple the book is anything but simplistic; there is a lot here to really make you think you twice about your parenting. Note, however, that thi [...]
As my children approach school age, I'm finding myself drawn to books like these--how to help them without hindering them. Elmore presents a very easy to follow and instructional book for parents in my position. Let's face it, there are some out of control parents over there--those who just don't let their kids grow up (and this can pose some real problems in adulthood. I know a few of these "kids" and, whoa, it's not pretty, folks!)This book is very well organized. I will say that it is a littl [...]
I love Tim Elmore. In his latest book, Tim outlines 12 mistakes parents can avoid. Here's the 12: 1. We won't let them fail. (When we remove the possibility of failure, we dilute kids' motivation.)2. We project our lives on them. (When we project, kids are pressured to be someone they're not.)3. We prioritize being happy. (When happiness is the goal instead of a by-product, it is elusive and disappointing.)4. We are inconsistent. (When we are inconsistent, we send mixed signals and breed insecur [...]
I believe this is a very good book. I currently live outside the united states, so I was unaware of many of the difficulties currently going on there. However, I did grow up there until after college when I moved away. I believe this book does a very good job explaining all the possible downfalls and pitfalls of parenting as concerns our children. I also believe it explains in very good details some of the things we need to consider, some of the things we need to do, and some of the things we ne [...]
Nice read. I was glad to see we do a LOT of things right, as parents. It is however, important to see where we can improve, especially when it comes to letting them take more risks and make more decisions for themselves. We also have to work at 'instant gratification' that our youngest has gotten used to. A nice addition to this book would be a workbook to help parents work through some of the concepts in this book.

Elmore covers 12 main mistakes parents make and how to avoid them. Over Parenting is the central theme that runs throughout the book. The book is helpful, and will give pointers for any modern parent.
I really liked Tim Elmore's wisdom and perspective. I did find the examples at the beginning if each chapter to be a but extreme and got weary of reading them. Nonetheless, I would recommend this book.
This book should be required reading for all parents.
This was vey helpful and informative
Excellent encouragement for parents. Elmore gives great ideas for rethinking our approach to parenting & leading our children into healthy adulthood.
Great book for anyone who leads young people
Our school gave all parents this book to read. A great perspective. I always enjoy reading books like this.
